Yay, the summer officially started! And how.. it was 34 degrees that day! With that heat I was craving some cold ice tea. You probably know the feeling?! The ice teas in the supermarket are full of sugar, so why not make it yourself? It’s so super easy! I would definitely call this a cheat recipe. You can make this ice tea with any tea you like. Last year I bought a very nice pina colada tea in Mallorca and that is the one I used, to give it this extra summery flavour. It was delicious with some extra lemons in there. So refreshing! You can also make this with green tea, passion fruit tea (or any other fruit flavour), earl grey or even the old English breakfast tea. Experiment what your favourite flavour is. So for all the hot days to come.. you will be prepared now!
-1,5 l water
-3 tea bags
-2-3 tbs agave nectar
-1 tbs palm sugar
-1 lemon (sliced)
-ice cubes (optional)
-Boil the water.
-Pour the hot water in a jug and let it cool down for 10 minutes.
-Put all the tea bags in the jug and let the soak for 3-10 minutes. It really depends on how strong you want it to get. Taste regular and take the bags out as soon as you like the strength.
-Mix in the agave nectar (add to taste) and the palm sugar.
-Add the lemon slices, give it a last mix and let it all cool down.
-As soon as it’s room temperature you can put it in the fridge. Leave it in the fridge for 3 hours or overnight.
-Personally I don’t like ice cubes too much, but if you do, make sure you add some before you pour yourself a glass.
